At long last, it’s here – Scrivener 1.0 for Windows is now available for download and purchase. Please see the product page here:
Scrivener for Windows costs a mere $40 ($35 for students and educators) – slightly less than the Mac version simply because it still has a little catching up to do, given that the Mac version has been in development for five years longer. That said, Scrivener 1.0 for Windows has shipped with far more of the Mac 2.0 features than we had initially planned (including epub and Kindle mobi support), and Lee (the Windows developer) has done an amazing job on it. If you’ve used Scrivener for Mac, you’ll feel right at home in Scrivener for Windows; if you haven’t, then rest assured that Scrivener for Windows has been built from the ground up as a native Windows program (i.e. it is not a dodgy port!).
Thanks to everyone who has shown such enthusiasm for a Windows version, and to all our beta-testers who have helped improve Scrivener for Windows no end over the past year. 1.0 is just the beginning, of course – there are lots of free 1.x updates in the works. Anyway, we hope you like Scrivener for Windows and that you find it useful with your own writing endeavours, as we do in ours.
(And by the way, bestselling author David Hewson has updated his ebook, “Writing a Novel with Scrivener”, to cover the Windows version too – details available here.)
